21 November 2009 - 15 February 2010. Hendrick Avercamp (1585-1634) was a 17th century Dutch artist famous for his landscapes. As the title of this exhibition suggests, the artist specialised in depicting closely-observed snowy scenes such as ice-skating couples, children throwing snowballs, even a gentleman falling through the ice. This is the first time the Rijksmuseum has hosted such a comprehensive exhibition devoted entirely to the work of Avercamp. Many of the paintings are on loan from Norway's Billedgaleri, Boston's Museum of Fine Arts and galleries in London.
